I do have two outstanding bets tonight which include:
Stvenage Win v Histon £8 @ 1.30
Peer Win v Jankovic £16 @ 1.73
Also, I really think my football bets need a bit more work. I posted some tips the other day, and only one paid out, the other two were losing bets. I'm trying to work on a high strike rate, low odds bets, that I can place a little bit more on to offset the horse racing tips as the strike rates on these are low but at better odds. I think my staking plan and the way I bet is sort of working. I have so far placed 355 bets, with 115 winners. From my little starting pot of £500 I have turned over bets worth £2229.30 (4 x my betting bank). However, it is disappointing that I have so far only made a profit of £7.50 which is a very measly 0.33% Return on Investment. The only solace is that if I was over staking or had poor bank management, then I am sure I would have been found out by now. Any thoughts or advice from readers would be appreciated. x
I was going to back a few in the second race as well - but the shortlist was too big and I just didn't feel confident with cutting the field further and the profit was not worth the risk - so I have left this race alone.
I may be back in a short while after I have placed bets on the next race. Good Luck! xx

Draw No Bet Outcome Bookmaker Odds Value Prob.
24 Feb Tottenham - Bolton 2 Victor Chandler 9.00 1.34 12.92%
1X2 Outcome Bookmaker Odds Value Prob.
24 Feb USA - Switzerland 2 Bet Chronicle 15.50 1.34 7.64%
After thinking about the value betting scenario, and also that it seems like the hard work is already done by the site and the other bookmakers, I thought I will give it a go, and see what happens. If i'm honest I don't really understand the value figure, but i'm guessing if I keep backing at odds that are better than what they should be, then I should make a profit in the long tern. I will only be staking £1 on these bets. I will see after a month or so, if there is any mileage in it or not. If anyone has any views or does something similar, then I would love to hear from you.
These are the bets that I had today, and have been settled so far:
Trabolgan: £8 @ 3.50 -£8
Marodima: £4 @ 8.50 +£30
No Wonga: £6 @ 3.75 -£6
Chief Dan George: £3 @ 8.00 +£21
Five Out Of Five: £3 @ 15.00 -£3
Chief Dan George £6 @ 8.50 +£27
Le Seychellois £3 @ 16.00 -£3
Braunschweig v Burghausen Draw £4 @ 4.15 -£4
Total for the Day: +£54
